AJ is a natural — at just about everything. We're thrilled to have her awesome talent and fun-loving disposition on our team.


A little more about me...

  • What's my style? Always candid; 100% journalistic. Absolutely fun.
  • Black & White or color? Both!
  • Number of weddings I've documented? 200+
I wanted to send you a quick note to acknowledge how much I enjoyed working with your team, especially AJ. They were all awesome in every sense of the word and really helped make our day as great as it possibly could have been. I am happy to act as a point for reference for anyone who would want a firsthand account of working with your team and will be directing everyone I know getting married in the Chicago area your way. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to have worked with Artisan Events. AJ fit in like a favorite cousin, she has a sincerely sweet spirit that is lovely to have around. I didn’t have a wedding party so she was kind enough to guide & support me throughout my wedding day. Their portfolio speaks for themselves but their personal attention & professionalism are unmatched.

An amazing photographer during our day...AJ will also double as a therapist—and trust me you need someone who can help you relax that day! My loving groom forgot the rings and she helped me stay calm while the ceremony was delayed by 30 minutes. AJ was patient with my family and got great candid shots that captured the feel of the wedding.
